SEEKING TALENT
EDWARD “EDDIE” PELLEGRINO
AGE: Late 20s/Early 30s
ETHNICITY: Italian American

A self-absorbed, sociopathic drug fiend with delusions of grandeur. Nephew of a prominent mobster, Philip Graziano, he attempts to obtain the same status as his uncle.

DOUGLAS “DOUGIE” PECELLI
AGE: Early 30s
ETHNICITY: Italian American

Eddie’s older cousin. Dougie, like his cousin and uncle, dabbles in illegal activities but is much more of a chill and lackadaisical when it comes to life and business.

MONICA TROVARELLO TREADWELL-CLEMENS
AGE: Mid 30s
ETHNICITY: Italian American

Monica is condescending, stuck up, and nosey. Completely rejecting her working class roots, she married into an old moneyed WASP family and puts on heirs around her own relatives. She consistently gives her younger sister, Calista, unwarranted advice on how she should live her life and raise her daughter and takes pleasure out of dominating her husband, Nigel. The only two people who can put her in her place are her grandmother and her niece’s father, Malcolm, whom she intensely dislikes.

CONSTANCE PONTECORVO
AGE: Early to Mid 70s
ETHNICITY: Italian American

Constance is Monica’s grandmother and the widow of a well respected mobster. She’s blunt, wise, energetic, and absolutely refuses to take shit from anybody. Like Monica, she’s always giving unwarranted advice to those around her but actually knows what she’s talking about. Out of her two granddaughters, she can connect with Calista the most. Regardless of her age, Constance still somewhat of sensual being seeing as she’ll flirt with her great granddaughter’s father, Malcolm, whenever he’s around.

VAUGHN ASHFORD
AGE: Late 20s/Early 30s
ETHNICITY: White American

Vaughan is Calista’s stoic, but nerdy fiancé. An individual that grew up in a wealthy family, he had a very sheltered childhood. He met Calista through Monica, seeing as he’s friends with her husband. Monica labels him as “a great choice on paper” and practically forced him and her sister to go out on a date. In his relationship with Calista, he’s obviously more invested in it than she is and he adores her daughter. The only obstacle for Vaughan in this is Calista’s ex-boyfriend, Malcolm, who intimates the hell out of him.

PAIGE GARDNER PREGENZER
AGE: Late 20s
ETHNICITY: White American

Paige is Malcolm’s wife. Pathetic and needy, she spends her time spending money, snorting cocaine, and vying for her unfaithful husband’s attention any chance she gets. She’s aware of Malcolm’s infidelities and knows of one of his many mistresses. An attention seeker, she’ll go to certain lengths to be noticed and will flip out when ignored.

AGE: Late 50s/Early 60s
ETHNICITY: White American

McGarrity is an arrogant, wealthy lawyer that enjoys the company of prostitutes.

DONALD ZIMMERMAN

A weak but morally questionable detective that plays both sides of the law who is regularly employed by McGarrity.

CHERI

Local prostitute that is well known in the area that is usually employed by Malcolm.

RAQUEL BEAUCHAMP
